This article reports a meta-analytic test of a two-dimensional work Stressor framework with respect to Stressors' relationships with strains, motivation, and performance. Hindrance Stressors had a negative direct effect on performance, as well as negative indirect effects on performance through strains and motivation. Challenge Stressors had a positive direct effect on performance, as well as offsetting indirect effects on performance through strains (negative) and motivation (positive). Results suggest research and practice could benefit by distinguishing among challenge and hindrance Stressors.
